Matzah is the traditional unleavened bread eaten at Pesah (Passover). The very first Passover meal, called a Seder, is commemorated with the eating of Matzah because the ancient Hebrews had no time to let their bread leaven before fleeing Egypt. Therefore, the only bread they had at the Seder was unleavened.
